Olga di Kiev, moglie del Gran Principe Igor. Grande donna, che fondò il Granducato sullo sterminio dei Drevljani. E fece più che bene. Temere le donne pratiche.


In campagna elettorale i politici promettono a destra e manca: poi si tirano i remi in barca. Anche Casanova irretiva le femmine con promesse mirabolanti, che poi dimenticava una volta gustato il fragile bonum.

Dismessi gli abiti del Marktschreier, Ursula von der Leyen evidenzia la prospettiva di una ragionevole Realpolitik, che tenga conto delle esigenze reali, ma anche dei grandi elettori e delle loro esigenze. In questo Frau Ursula si dimostra non solo politica, ma anche molto femminile: nei pregi e nei difetti.

Pacta servanda sunt, gli accordi sono stati fatti per essere rispettati: gli esclusi avranno ciò che loro spetta, ma nulla è loro dovuto. Ma ogni azione dovrebbe sempre essere ‘ragionevole‘.

«We must all learn that full rule of law is always our goal, but nobody’s perfect,»

«In central and eastern European countries, many feel that they’re not fully accepted, and if we guide debates as sharply as we have done, it contributes to countries and peoples believing that they are being targeted as a whole»

Interessante notare come il The Guardian riporti l’intervista. Ne proponiamo uno stralcio sui problemi di bottega.

«She indicated a more nuanced approach towards states such as Poland and Hungary, which have been brazenly challenging the EU consensus on issues such as migration, the rule of law and press freedom.

“I think we have to properly listen to the arguments. For example, the Poles make the justified point that they have taken in 1.5 million people from the Ukraine – a country that has for years been the site of a hybrid war in which people are still dying. We must not ignore that.

“Also, the member states who want to go ahead [with a refugee distribution scheme] are already in the process of finding solutions. But it remains the case that in different areas every member state needs the solidarity of the others. We need a fair sharing of the burden – maybe in different areas for different countries.”»

«Asked whether her dream had changed since then, she said: “It has become more mature and more realistic. In the European Union we have unity in diversity. That is something different to federalism. I think that is the right path.”»

Nota.

Quanti applicano il manuale Cencelli per valutare quanto abbia guadagnato l’Italia stanno compiendo un grossolano errore. Credere che sia vera la propaganda avversaria sembrerebbe essere un’idea fallace.

L’Italia ha già ottenuto fin troppo con l’aggrado al suo immane debito pubblico, ed era proprio questo l’oggetto delle trattative.

EU Observer. 2019-07-19. Von der Leyen signals soft touch on migrants, rule of law

Countries who rejected non-European migrants or raised concern on rule of law, such as Poland, could expect more sympathy from the European Commission, its new president, Ursula von der Leyen, has indicated.

Italy could also expect flexibility on budgets and the UK on its exit date, she said in an interview with five European newspapers on Friday (19 July).

But Russia ought to stay under EU sanctions and Turkey was drifting away from Europe, she added.

“The migration issue will be with us for decades,” von der Leyen told the five media, and EU countries such as Poland or Hungary, who have rebelled against migrant-sharing quotas with Greece and Italy, ought to be “listened to”, she said.

“I put the case of Poland, with its argument that they have already welcomed 1.5m Ukrainians. Ukraine is a country with a hybrid war, for years, in which people are still dying. We cannot ignore it,” she explained.

The EU “must reform Dublin”, she said, referring to European asylum laws, which oblige the first member state where an asylum seeker lands to take care of them.

But von der Leyen added, in a wink to Warsaw and Budapest, that “fair burden-sharing” could mean “perhaps each country in a differentiated aspect”.

Poland and Hungary are also under an EU sanctions procedure for abuse of rule of law at home.

But von der Leyen said “nobody’s perfect” and promised to take the heat out of the political clash.

“In central and eastern European countries, many feel that they’re not fully accepted, and if we guide debates as sharply as we have done, it contributes to countries and peoples believing that they are being targeted as a whole,” the German politician said.

“We must all learn that full rule of law is always our goal, but nobody’s perfect,” she added.

A new commission proposal, to do yearly rule of law reports on all 28 EU states, would “avoid giving the impression that part of Europe fundamentally regards the other critically,” she said.

Von der Leyen was narrowly voted in by the European Parliament earlier this week, amid crucial support from MEPs in Poland’s ruling Law and Justice party.

But she skirted a question on what that meant for her mandate.

The centre-right, liberals, and most of the centre-left also voted her, she said, adding: “What’s decisive for me is to have rallied a majority on the basis of a clearly pro-European speech and programme”.

Italy and Brexit

The incoming commission president also signalled a soft touch on EU fiscal limits in Italy, where two populist parties in power boosted welfare spending.

“Again, we have to take out the sharp emotions,” von der Leyen said.

“The stability and growth pact [EU fiscal limits] must be respected, but there is also a lot of flexibility in the framework that can be better exploited,” she added.

Britain could extend its 31 October Brexit deadline if it needed to gain a happy outcome, she said.

“We must do everything possible to have an orderly Brexit. If there were good reasons for a postponement, I am open to listening to them,” von der Leyen told the European newspapers.

But she took a more hawkish line on foreign policy, saying Russia ought to stay under EU sanctions over its invasion of Ukraine and that Turkey was moving “in the opposite direction” from Europe.

Russia

“Russia is our neighbour and will remain so. But the Kremlin does not forgive any weakness. That is the experience of the last years,” she said.

Asked if it made sense to go on with Turkey’s accession talks despite its anti-EU turn under president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, von der Leyen said EU negotiations were meant to make candidates “modernise and adapt to the EU, not the other way around”.

“At this moment I do not see any fact in Turkey that goes in this direction. The accession process is paralysed because Turkey is going in the opposite direction”, she said.

Von der Leyen spoke in Berlin to a consortium of European newspapers, including La Vanguardia from Spain, La Stampa (Italy), Le Monde (France), Sueddeutsche Zeitung (Germany), and The Guardian (UK).

She was even more hawkish on Russia in a separate interview with German newspaper Die Welt also on Friday.

“From a position of strength, we should stick to the Russia sanctions,” she said, in words that would also be music to Warsaw’s ears.

And she told German newspaper Bild that Germany’s plan to build a new gas pipeline to Russia, called Nord Stream 2, which Poland has opposed, created a “danger of over-dependence on Russian energy”.
